SORT BY Relevancy
Mr Akashambatwa Mbikusita-Lewanika is one of Zambia's leading innovative and exceptional political and business leaders, having served in numerous companies as chief executive officer and was one of the architects of the nation's early nineties political revolution. He was a founding member of the popularly known political party the MMD (Movement for Multiparty democracy) and was at the helm of drafting the new parties manifesto and economic policies, which eventually won the 1991 polls to form government. Mr Mbikusita-Lewanika served as Minister of Higher Education and Vocational Training, Political Adviser to the country's fourth president and until recently he was Managing Director at the Tanzania-Zambia Railway Authority (TAZARA). He is our guest on PERSPECTIVES to discuss Zambia's economic performance and policies of the past 3 decades and the future of the party he helped found the MMD.
THREE SHOWS BACK TO BACK
General Godfrey Miyanda served as minister without-potforlio and Vice president of Zambia in the MMD government. He is currently the president of Heritage Party and one of the presidential candidates in the upcoming elections on September 20, 2011. He joins us to discuss political career and Heritage party's chances in the upcoming elections. Kapiri Mposhi's main claim to fame is that it stands at one end of the TAZARA railway. There is a constant flow of people, buses and trucks through town which makes it lively. Kapiri is a town which visitors often pass through, but where they seldom linger. Expect people around at all times of the day and night.
Kapiri Mposhi is hard to avoid if you're traveling northwards from Lusaka. Its links to the rest of the country are excellent.
On Business Forum, we profile Kapiri Mposhi as business destination. Town Clerk, Mr. Venture Kafula will be our guest.
